The more simple it is about a computer,the better it is,for us,dimwits who understand nothing about it's specialists 's vocabulary . I was looking at my first time computer for months and could not get it clear what to do with . It was no fun at all ,and I about quit,leaving it alone on the shelf .To this very day,outside of going on Internet, I don't comprehend much about the rest of it .The words used are the problem,it's like going to Stanford to hear a math genius while in real life,we mostly need to know to pay the bills and keep track about witch day it is .They are probably billions of people with decent to fair intelligence who can't get it any clearer than I.so YOU have to learn HOW to teach us so it becomes all so clear .

Skies,

Please understand that the real dimwits are the developers who purposely obfuscate their work in order to overly complicate the process. Makes them feel superior; when in reality the superior person is the one who designs systems which everyone can use. The technology was meant to make life easier so we can concentrate on doing the job at hand. Instead these marching morons have succeeded in creating systems which are increasingly making all of our jobs not only more difficult; but less pleasant. It is not your fault that the hardware and software are difficult to comprhend; it is the fault of designers and developers who have forgotten their mission. To optimioze our on-line experince; not pretty it up with bells and whistles which do little more than a medical system which prescribes drugs to counteract symptoms instead of addressing what the causes of the illness are.
